If you’re planning on taking the ferry from Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen this holiday Monday, you might want to reconsider.
BC Ferries says in a travel advisory issued early Monday that all sailings from Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen are completely sold out for the day and travellers should consider walking on or travelling on a different day.
“It’s the busiest weekend of the year to travel and customers without a booking will experience multiple sailing waits during peak travel times. If you don’t have a booking, consider travelling as foot passengers or on alternate days,” reads the advisory.
BC Ferries says customers are less likely to experience waits on Tuesday as traffic is expected to ease.
Meanwhile, Monday sailings between Duke Point and Tsawwassen are also entirely sold out between 7:45 a.m. and 10 p.m., according to the company.
BC Ferries says there is “some space remaining” on the last sailing of the day” from Tsawwassen to Duke Point. However, in an update posted on social media at 1:18 p.m., BC Ferries says the Coastal Inspiration is currently holding in dock due to a medical emergency.
